Nick Folk's Field Goal a Record Setter

Nick Folk's field goal was significant in the game. It will also go down in Jets history.


K Nick Folk established a team record and a career long with a 56-yard field with6:47 remaining in the third quarter. His field goal surpassed the previous team record of 55 yards, accomplished four times, most recently by Jay Feely versus MIA (11/1/09). Last week versus the Vikings, Folk matched his previous long with a 53-yard field goal.


Jets kickers with 55-yd FG:
Jay Feely        11/1/09 vs. MIA
Jay Feely       11/9/08. vs. SL
John Hall       8/31/97 at SEA
Pat Leahy       12/14/85 vs. CHI

Like I said before, Folk probably does not have the leg to make a field goal that long at sea level, but it was still a heck of a kick.

Jay Feely is having a very good year for Arizona. His departure allowed the Jets to sign Jason Taylor, though. Many were skeptical, but at this point, the Jets are a better team with Folk and Taylor than they would be with just Feely.
